we all are gypsies of a sort wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled - this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real - come along with me - we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - share our stories around the campfire - come along -

this site is simply a streamofconsciousness rambling of words and images in which i find meaning and beauty - there is no organized order of thought or format -
poetry painting and writing on love and life and things thereof from the heart and through the eyes of a louisiana gypsy spirit travelin' roads less traveled...enjoy -

A...WOMAN IN MOTION WITH HAIR AS DARK AS NIGHT HER EYES WERE LIKE THAT OF A CAT IN THE DARK... SHE WAS A GYPSYWOMAN... she danced round and round... from the fire her face was all aglow... she was dancing... dancing... waiting for the RISING SUN... loving caring relationships are like THE RISING SUN...we are nourished by their warmth...we are energized by their strength...we grow in their light...we find shelter and solace there...they are our sanctuary... born in the sign of the sun, i am a true LEO-love the sun and its hot orange red fire-passionate in and about everything i do-i believe in instant chemistry charisma love/lust at first sight-in the magic of the eyes and the beauty of the soul-in the instant recognition familiarity in meeting someone from a past life and in the knowledge that we might meet in a future life-i believe that we are each ageless and flawless-i believe in the beauty of the moment-the whisper of yesterday-the hope of tomorrow-the power of forgiveness for even ourselves-the absolute and total beauty of love---[credit to brian hyland and curtis mayfield]

the gypsy weeps...

her eyes in midnight velvet
black jet tamed by no man yet

soft breasts of alabaster silk
with skin like soft creamy milk

her hair spread like raven wings
when she speaks the gods do sing

lips all pouty and shimmering wet
she lives and loves without regret

spinning webs in ribbons of light
laid in shadows of darkest night
secrets hid in her red red heart
yearning for a love not lived apart

wish she did with all her might
but life alone is her sad plight

and so it is in the forest deep
the heavens sleep

the gypsy weeps

Jenean, such a dear subject to your heart... the gypsy... the lonely sad dejected gypsy... who loves like the earth loves its creation. This is as sad and earthy and ethereal as a gypsy can be... and I loved it!


Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Okay, we're taking the caravan out of the campsite and going hunting for the guy whose soul is like yours.


nevine - your words always find the place in my heart from whence my own words come - and i cherish that so, dear friend!


well, trish, i am just SO ready! wagon packed and horses harnessed! giddeyup!!! thank you for your words!!!

Rick said...

hmmm..so she wishes to be tamed by man? Something about love apart that brings sadness, isn't there? more so than no love at all. nice write. ~rick


oh, no, dear sir, not wishing to be tamed by ANY man or anyTHING - even though she weeps for the one true love whom she hides in her red red heart and from whom she is destined to live apart - when the night is quiet with just a slight soft breeze, her weeping, it is said, can be heard round the world - a mournful story for sure!

hey mister!! thanks so much for coming by - wonderful to see you - hope the roads are treating you well - come by soon!!!
